Marvelous Moppet

Moppet, against all odds, at 23 years was suffering badly with her teeth and gums. She has been wonderful for her age, still demanding her food and tells us if we have taken too long!! She springs across the grass when the weather is good and no other cat dares go near her or she will tell them what for!
A decision had to be made as to what to do about the awful teeth she was struggling to eat with. The vet had a terrible time trying to see in her mouth as she struggled, bit and scratched. She told me that there was a very high risk that she would not recover from the aesthetic. For the third time in 2 weeks they had to put up with me sobbing and saying goodbye (after beloved Phoebe and jade the week before)
After the triple knock out injection they had to use to sedate her, she did come out of it very worse for wear. her recovery was very slow and we were all worried.
She stayed overnight and I dreaded calling in the morning. When I did the news was good. She had perked up and was asking for food. By the time I collected her that evening she was as bright as a button and is still doing so well! Theres no stopping our old lady!!
